The last three times I’ve done Baby Girl’s hair she hasn’t complained. Whoo hoo!
I think conditioning it in the shower may have helped. I used to:
Wash with baby shampoo.
Apply refined cold-pressed coconut oil.
Sometimes she would stand it for a bit but if it was tangled, she would lose it. One time I decided to see if conditioning it with my conditioner would help and … it seems like it did.
I condition it right after washing and detangle with my fingers in the shower. The first time I put two ponytails with twists and a “bang” ponytail in the front. The second time, I did afro puffs. This afternoon, I did two French braids. No crying. She played with her bag of hair accessories.
I think we’re in business!
